Ingredients

DOUGH

1 bag(s)
self rising flour 5 lb
5 c
milk
2 1/2 c
sugar
3 Tbsp
oil

MEAT

4 lb
ground pork
1
yellow onion diced
3 clove
garlic minced
1/2 c
dried black fungus i buy this at a asain market if you dont have them you can just leave them out
2 tsp
garlic salt
2 tsp
sugar
3 Tbsp
oyster sauce
2 tsp
pepper
12
hard boiled eggs

Step-By-Step

1Mix milk and sugar together. Take 1 cup of flour out (use for dusting later).Put flour into a large bowl.Slowly add milk and sugar mixture and oil.Will be very sticky. After mixing together place a towel and let rest for 45 minutes.
2Soak the fungus for about 15 minutes in hot water, drain well.Mix all the meat ingrdients together.
Except the eggs. Peel those and cut into 4 pieces.
3When the dough is ready,dust your table with flour.kneed for maybe 5 minutes,then make into 2 long logs ( about 20 inches ).Cut each log into 20 pieces.
4Roll each piece out into a round shape( mine arent so round..lol) You want the center a little thicker than the outer edges.
5Place about a 1/4 cup meat mixture in the middle and a piece of egg.Bring up the sides and pinch together at the top.
6Steam for 25 minutes on medium heat. These will fluff up so you want to leave about a inch or so between them.
7My daughter saw a video on you tube how to make them into the shape of a pig.She had alot of fun making them into piggies.
8When my ex makes these he also put a piece of chinese sausage in his. My daughter loves it but I didn't have any this time so we left it out. Fine with me I don't like it.
